Yael Eckstein Remembers Israeli First Lady Nechama Rivlin

A ‘Picture of Dignity and Dedication’

JERUSALEM —With the passing of Israeli First Lady Nechama Rivlin, Mrs. Yael Eckstein of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews issued the following remarks:

“We extend our condolences to the President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, as we all mourn the loss of his dear wife Nechama—another among the modern State of Israel’s founding generation. Like so many Israelis, Nechama Rivlin’s life charted a varied and interesting path. From the halls of the university to the halls of the presidential residence, she was a picture of dignity and she lived her life in total dedication to Israel’s most vulnerable people. Her loss is felt in the very heart of our nation. May her memory be a blessing.”
